Goodnight Irene

Writer/ Director: Short Film


My goal with Goodnight Irene was to tell a haunting, and hopefully thoughtful, story with no dialog, in little more than five minutes. YES, an entire film in five and a half minutes.


So as to not make it feel awkward that no one is speaking, I came up with a little yarn about someone who is alone the entire time.


This is so far my favorite film I've ever made. This proves the old adage that 90% of directing is casting!
